The Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) has today (October 30) released its Sustainability Report 2014/15 titled Growing Together. The report details the AA’s sustainability performance and management approach in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015, covering the areas of economic contribution, airport growth, operational excellence, the environment, and people and the community.
Jack So Chak-kwong, chairman of the AA, said, “Sustainability is central to maintaining the competitiveness of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), and indeed of Hong Kong. More specifically, the expansion of the airport into a three-runway system is essential to maintaining Hong Kong’s pre-eminence as the financial, tourism and logistics hub for the region. As we have taken into account the views of our airport business partners, other key stakeholders and members of the public in the development of this report, we will continue to consult them in the next phase of our growth.”
The AA is leveraging technology to enhance the airport’s efficiency and passenger experience and has established the HKIA Technovation Board to drive systematic, long-term innovation and technology development at the airport.
On the environmental front, HKIA remains on track toward achieving its airport-wide carbon intensity reduction target of 25% by the end of 2015, and is in the process of developing future carbon reduction targets with associated reduction strategies.
This year’s sustainability report has been independently verified by the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency, providing greater transparency and accountability for the AA’s stakeholders.
